    69 I. Major accomplishments.
    70 Demonstrated the use of identity federation and enterprise group control to manage many aspects of ORCA at GEC8.
    71 
    72 A. Milestones achieved. 
    73 Established a proof of concept that federated identity and group access controls can manage GENI experiments.
    74 
    75 B.  Deliverables made.
    76 The demo at GEC8 illustrated not only the use of federated identity but also the use of groups for access control.  Worked with the Cobham group and introduced them to COmanage and the issues and approaches to attribute creation at the enterprise and at the cluster/experiment level. The federation knot paper continues to draw comments.
    77 
    78 II.  Description of work performed during last quarter
    79 
    80 A.  Activities and findings
    81 • Worked with ORCA and central IT staff at Duke to implement    Shibboleth/Grouper environment and to integrate Shibboleth with the ORCA portal.
    82 • Developed demo showing authentication at the home campus and use of group memberships within CoManange to manage permissions at the GENI portal.
    83 • Worked with TIED deployer to integrate Shibboleth with their attribute-based access control libraries.
    84 • Held ongoing discussions with GPO on identity management and access issues.
    85 • Delivered demo at GEC8.
    86 
    87 B.  Project participants
    88 Ken Klingenstein (Internet2), Principal Investigator: project direction, federation analysis, white paper development, participant in GENI CF discussions, liaison with Steve Schwab of Cobham and service as project liaison to the GPO.
    89 
    90 Steven Carmody (Brown University), Senior IT Architect at Brown University and Project Manager of Internet2's Shibboleth Project: focus on engagement with ORCA and Planetlab on technical issues.

    110 
    111 I. Major accomplishments
    112 A. Milestones achieved
    113         Presented at GEC10 in support of federated identity proposal
    114         Proposal was endorsed by GENI community and will set a plan for the next six months on a number of federated activities and opportunities
    115         Began discussion of the use of COmanage to generate local attributes
    116 B. Deliverables made
    117         Workshop at GEC10 on federated identity
    118 
    119 II. Description of work performed during last quarter
    120 A. Activities and findings
    121         Worked closely with GPO and two clusters (ORCA and ProtoGENI) to develop a federated identity alternative for GENI
    122         Helped develop a plan for the GENI portal with GENI staff, and set an agenda going forward.
    123 Began to develop a set of options for federated IdM for GPO staff, to allow it to get to distributed GENI participant resources. Plan may use COmanage as a local IdM for GPO, addressing the lack of appropriate IdM infrastructure in the GPO, in BBN and in Raytheon. Began to identify options for federating GENI collaboration resources, such as its lists and wikis.
    124         Clarified the options for the creation and aggregation of attributes associated with GENI participants.
    125 
    126 B. Project participants
    127         Steven Carmody, Brown; Ken Klingenstein, Internet2; Heather Flanagan, Internet2
    128 C. Publications (individual and organizational)
    129         none
    130 D. Outreach activities ¶
